Brown Sugar Grilled Chicken
Sometimes I become bored with bottled BBQ sauce and sometimes I am just too lazy to make my own.
Wanting something different I decided to add a rub to my chicken.
I have used this rub in the past on chicken thighs in the oven and scattered green onions on top of each piece too.
The results on the grill: Sweet and spicy! Also the sugar gives the chicken just enough char.
Brown Sugar Grilled Chicken:
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes (usually add this but the lil guy isn’t pepper friendly)
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
2 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
Mix spices, olive oil and brown sugar together in a bowl.
Cover top and bottom of each chicken breast with mixture.
Place in fridge for about an hour or so.
Grill on medium heat.
